I Will Always Write Back: How One Letter Changed Two Lives
Author
Martin Ganda
ISBN
9780316241311
The New York Times bestselling true story of an all-American girl and a boy from Zimbabwe and the letter that changed both of their lives forever. It started as an assignment. Everyone in Caitlin's class wrote to an unknown student somewhere in a distant place. Martin was lucky to even receive a pen-pal letter. There were only ten letters, and fifty kids in his class. But he was the top student, so he got the first one. That letter was the beginning of a correspondence that spanned six years and changed two lives. In this compelling dual memoir, Caitlin and Martin recount how they became best friends -- and better people -- through their long-distance exchange. Their story will inspire you to look beyond your own life and wonder about the world at large and your place in it.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Martin Ganda, Caitlin AlifirenkaPublisher: Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersPublished: 04/14/2015ISBN: 9780316241311Pages: 400Weight: 1.10lbsSize: 8.50h x 5.80w x 1.20dAward: Parents Choice Awards (Fall) (2008-Up) - Silver Medal WinnerAward: Cybils - FinalistReview Citations: School Library Journal 02/01/2015 pg. 126Kirkus Reviews 02/01/2015Publishers Weekly 03/16/2015New York Times Book Review 05/10/2015 pg. 19Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 07/01/2015Hornbook Guide to Children 07/01/2015 pg. 206 - Below Average, With Minor FlawPW Children's Starred Reviews 12/02/2015 pg. 116Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 173540 / I Will Always Write Back: How One Letter Changed Two LivesReading Level: 5.6 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 13
